swing states, those numbers have been the same way. in colorado our latest polling shows barack obama down by four points. these numbers are moving in similar fashion across most of the states, with one big exception, ohio. in a high of the numbers show that it is 48-48. there is great enthusiasm from republican voters across the country. the democrats appear to have a stronger ground game and we are seeing that especially in ohio. before we get into all of that, we have two guests and they've both say they have said things they regret they have informed me that is not accurate. governor rendell is someone who speaks his mind freely on nbc and obviously served as governor of the great state of pennsylvania. i want to start by asking them about their home states. can mitt romney win? >> i would say yes the pennsylvania is in play. and i would say that it is probably the best bellwether of what happened over the last three weeks. the their campaign is particularly active in a pennsylvania. they have not been running many television ads because most campaigns thought it was going to be i
-smart and have a tough job, but president obama is right here. one is to my right, one is to my left, and the president is sitting on the stool, and they are both looking at me, saying yes, i did, now i did not, and i felt like this feels so familiar. i instinctively said well, he kind of did, but, and then turned and said the larger point -- i wish i had then -- -- i wish i had been -- that was shorthand. >> a lot of people ask me about if i thought it was appropriate, and aside from you be my friend, i defended you anyway because it is not that you interjected, but that you had it right when you interjected. that is the key. >> it would of been bad otherwise. [laughter] >> than we had a conspiracy theories that i had a transcript with me. i knew that was willing to come up? as you know, as reporters, things stick in your brain. you don't know where they come from. >> they only do if you have done the work. >> i wish i had been a tiny bit more articulate in the second that i was saying to romney you are right, but, and when i said the first thing, people started to applaud, which st
. that is what this is about. president obama and john boehner sat at the table, and they almost had a grand bargain, but the tea party and my opponent would not let boehner make a deal. now we're left with the sequestration. with the looming cuts at the end of the year that our economy cannot sustain is because of the extremism. >> sequestration was obama's idea. it had nothing to do with the house. i brought the legislation to the house floor to stave off sequestration. i am taking action. >> we are talking about spending cuts that will affect defense and social programs. it is a good point to start popping off on medicare and health care. your question goes to mr. murphy. >> we have seen different numbers on what the paul ryan plan would do in the fact to increase costs to seniors, anywhere from $6,350 to about $200 a month. what kind of number can we look at and say this is what a cut will look like under this plan because of a large area of the budget that needs to be looked at? >> that is the kaiser family foundation study. under the ryan plan, 60% of seniors will face cost increases.
to vote for? these are telling me that the tactics that president obama is using, talking about diners, bayonets and big birds, they're rubbing people the wrong way. in part because they want to focus on jobs in the economy, which is this big, darker issue that the country is facing right now. it's worrying people a lot. and so, the idea that he can talk about things like the binders comment, which is really just a play off a comment that mitt romney made during the presidential debate, where he talks about his desire to hire a lot of women. and it's not helping him. i think that's reflected in the poll numbers because you're seeing right now romney is tied, or seems to have a kind of momentum moving into the time week. that's just what pollsters are saying. i think democrats feel that this will help particularly with women voters, because they make up the majority, and if they can kind of put forward this argument that mitt romney wants to take away somethings that are very important to them, then they can get the edge amongst that party leck rate. which in a very close election can b
that president obama and my husband are making quality investments to move us forward on education. i'm also involved in this election as a woman who cares about the direction of our country. i have seen barack and joe said that for our rights and freedoms every single day. -- stand up for our rights and freedoms every single day. the very first law put an obama signed with the lily ledbetter. the president and vice- president know how important it is for women to make our own decisions about our own bodies, our own health care. [applause] so many women of my generation have fought hard for roe versus wade, access to contraception and for equal rights. we don't want out daughters and granddaughters to have to go back and fight the same battles that we fought decades ago. [applause] we cannot forget about the importance of the supreme court in the direction this country could take. finally, i care about this country. about this election as a military mom. our son beau is a in the delaware national army guard and he served in a rack for a year. -- iraq for a year. i had the honor of meeting ma
. i think obama still has a narrow edge. i think casey will pull this out. democrats have had to go in and help him. what we are looking for, if scott brown does not pull it out in massachusetts early on, and tim kaine slightly has an edge in virginia, it becomes difficult for republicans. republicans would be happy for a win at 3. democrats have good candidates. even if they fall short in places like arizona and north dakota, they have made these republicans spend money. >> thank you very much. >> now from maine, a debate among candidates for the senate seat. this hourlong debate is brought to us by wmtw tv in portland, maine. >> in the next hour, you will hear from six candidates who want to represent the maine in the senate. i want to give you a quick word about our format tonight. the questions come from our editorial board and viewers and e-mails. we want to hear from you. >> we already have good questions coming in. this is your chance to ask the senate candidates in you think you want -- candidates anything you want. >> the candidates will have one minute to answer the questi
that obama signed. it got us just back to where everybody thought the law was all these decades. there is a bill regarding the paycheck fairness act that is a modernized and updated and deals with some of the loopholes in the equal pay act to help us. it is an economically important issue for women. it did pass the house at one point. it ran into a filibuster problem in the senate. it has yet to pass the paycheck fairness act and vigorous enforcement. these are critically important steps for women's economic security and the security of their families. now we know that women do not work for "pin" money. [laughter] women need paychecks to keep their families going. the children need them. the women need them. this is no laughing matter. this is a technicality. -- no technicality. these are hard core policies that politicians decide upon that women need to be informed about in making their own decisions when they go to the ballot box. even more important than what their decision might be when they go is that they do go. i have to say that one of the things about encouraging women
